One of my favorite verses from the bible is from Psalm 118:24: This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. In my humble opinion, the implications of this verse are powerful, less in the literally interpretation of creation and more in the subtext of opportunity…human opportunity. As the sun rises and sets, we are given another chance … Continue reading Rejoice and be Glad!

I am convinced that quickest way to slide down the rabbit hole of negativity is to allow yourself to become a complacent participant in life by cutting off your connectivity with others. Look, I get it, maybe you are going through cancer treatment or other health issues, or you are dealing with an unexpected financial burden, or maybe a break-up, death of a loved one, … Continue reading Steps to avoiding the rabbit hole of negativity
I have always been fascinated with photography. Oh, not in a way that I ever wanted to pursue any sort of career with it.
